A 9 - DomQuartier


15,000 magnificent square metres - 2,000 stunning exhibits - 1,300 moving years

With the opening of the new DomQuartier on 17 May 2014, Salzburg founded a cultural highlight in the heart of the city: the former centre of the archbishop's power, the complex consisting of palace and cathedral, completed by St. Peter's Abbey, was once again opened to the public as a complete tour for the first time in 200 years.

The powerful archbishops began to transform the city of Salzburg into a Baroque jewel more than 400 years ago. Impressed by the opulent grandiosity of the influential Papal States of Rome, the capital of Salzburg's diocese was sure to blossom as the diocese was incredibly wealthy thanks to its trade in salt, gold and other raw materials. The biggest architects of the time were brought to Salzburg and created a city planning masterpiece that is treasured and protected today as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
